Instructions for FSX

To map buttons in Microsoft Flight Simulator X, do the same thing you would for any other joystick. Select the control you want to map, then press the corresponding button in Touch Pilot One.

For the axes, set the null zone to the lowest setting, which is 1.

For the brakes, set the repeat slider to max for left, right, and both. Leave the repeat slider on minimum for parking brakes.

Note that the Comm and Mic buttons already use the default mapping in FSX, so you don’t need to map them. These buttons are for communicating with air traffic control. Press the Mic button to bring up the ATC window, and press buttons 1-9 to select responses. If you’re using a sim other than FSX, you can still map these buttons to whatever functions you like.

To start and stop the engine, we recommend you map the start and stop engine buttons to “Engine autostart” and “Engine autoshutdown”, in FSX.
